One of our universities has been told to expect a giant increase (over their 2014 3-year contract) of almost 50%. And if they only renewed for one year it would be >80%. Yikes.
Are others seeing this kind of jump or were able to mitigate? Henry last year listed out some open source products, but I don’t think the school is headed that way. I recall there is a newish competitor commercially, but cannot recall its name. Ah, Veracite is it. Have others had success moving to it?
